Further, she shared that making use of the tools provided by her psychiatrist at the clinic helped her improve her life in a way she had not expected. Gomez had also discussed their mental health with Rolling Stone where she said that at first, she could not accept the fact that she had Bipolar disorder. The Hands to Myself singer said,
“It took a lot of hard work for me to (a) accept that I was bipolar, but (b) learn how to deal with it because it wasn’t going to go away.”
According to Gomez, bipolar disorder caused her to forget certain words. It was also causing her to forget where she was at times. In her documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind, Body and Me, Gomez goes more into her mental health. Said she was terrified to share about the disorder.
Selena Gomez has to opt for Surrogacy In the Future
The Back To You singer, recently revealed her wish for motherhood with Rolling Stone. But she also revealed that unfortunately, her bipolar disorder made her incapable of bearing a baby. According to Gomez, the medications that she had to take to heal rendered it impossible for her to become pregnant. Even while she had cut down on many of the medicines, two of the most essential ones were very risky. That can be harmful to a pregnant person. Gomez said referring to having children someday, “That’s a very big, big, present thing in my life. However I’m meant to have them, I will.”
